The oceans, lakes and rivers of the world are the greatest museum of humanity’s interaction with the sea–as well as our global expansion and a record of our interactions with each other through immigration, exploration, commerce and war. In an engaging, detailed and yet quick tour, Dr. James P. Delgado explores some of history’s most famous and significant shipwrecks from antiquity through the modern age, with an emphasis on wrecks in and around North America, such as the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor, the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor, or the RMS Titanic.
